Friday at the range:
|Left to Right: 9mm FN Hi-Power; .45 Colt Peacemaker; Ruger .22 Target Pistol|
The Hi-Power is the practical self-defense pistol. The Ruger .22 is a great plinking gun with a nice site. I could shoot this all day. For real fun, the single-action, cowboy-style Colt Peacemaker is an authentic period piece. It shoots the .45 longs, not the .45 ACP. Nice to shoot, but not something I would take to the range every single day. It's like the old convertible that you only drive on nice days.
My shooting partner beat me in all three competitions today. I really need to get to the range more.
NOTE: All firearms were manually cleared, and visually inspected prior to taking this picture.
